Political Science 918-631-2349
Michael Mosher's interests focus upon the history of political philosophy with an emphasis upon the enlightenment philosophe and founding father of the social sciences, Baron Charles-Louis de Montesquieu and his many disciples and critics, including Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Edmund Burke, James Madison, G. W. F. Hegel, Alexis de Tocqueville, and Emile Durkheim. He has also published studies regarding contemporary concerns with civil society, rights and justice. Currently Mosher is working with others on a book (at Cambridge University Press, Sankar Muthu ed.) that looks at the issues of empire in the context of the history of modern Western political thought.
